Join us for a discussion with a panel of innovators on the opportunities (and problems) of licensing and relationship building across DSP and Artist Fan partnerships.

This months digital series will take a deep dive into the world of the Creator Economy & User Generated Content with a keynote from one of the leading research companies in the game, MIDiA Research followed by an expert panel.

This panel will focus on Samuel Jack’s ( UK-based South African singer ) song ‘Feels Like Summer,’ a song that was released in 2019, which went viral on Instagram this summer. Owen Thomas (Samuel’s management) will have some mind-boggling statistics on it (100 million+ streams, Gordon Ramsay, Sergio Ramos, and a slew of other celebrities utilizing it in videos expressing how happy they were that summer has arrived) & how it went from a little known song to taking Samuel on a world tour.

Samuel Jack ended up with all 3 Majors offering him deals before signing with Columbia / Arista (Sony).
